if you're someone who reads this blog with any kind of regularity, you probably care about fairness, justice, civil rights, and equity. If that's the case for you, and you live in Oregon, here's a chance to prove it. I just received this from the Oregon Center for Public Policy. I'll be there...will you??
Take Part in Sunday's United for Oregon March
For too long, Oregon has asked low- and middle-income families to sacrifice more

Make your voice heard and demand better!
